An icy robservational graph.
This graph was created not to make light of this horrible disease but rather my humble way of creating a little awareness for it.
It is a brutal disease that stole the life of a good friend of ours, Marinko Biljan who was the godfather to our son, Callum, as well as the surgeon that delivered him at birth !
Please like my blog post to spread the word – let’s reach one person at a time and find a cure for this bastard illness.
If you’ve ever seen the Tv show, MTV cribs that takes you inside the homes of the rich and famous, you’ll love this look at a Stormtrooper’s crib – quite the palace!
The word Hadouken comes from the Japanese Ha Dou (Wave or Surge) and Ken (Fist, Technique, or Attack); a blastwave or fireball formed from a martial artist’s life energy (or ki/ch’i).
It is the action taken in games like Mortal Combat when someone fires a powerful energy wave or fireball at others attacking them.
Err..what the hell are you talking about, Rob?
Let’s just show my Top 5 – you’ll get the idea:
#5 The Single Kid Hadouken
#4 The Boss Hadouken
#3 The buddy Hadouken
#2 The Fist Hadouken
#1 The Yoda Hadouken - well deserving of it’s position at the top

As I have heard mentioned in several Google lectures that I have attended in recent years, they are continuously looking to change paradigms and try things that most corporations would be never even dream of trying.
Message to big corporations – Be brave enough to break out of existing business practices, internal systems and traditional thinking, and try to see how technology and interactivity can take your business to another level.
As with Google’s balloons, the sky’s the limit !
Quite simply my favourite internet meme of recent years. It beats cat breading and planking by far.
Basic priciple is that you have to simulate in a photo, the moment in Star Wars when Darth Vader appears to choke one of his colleagues and lift him in the air.

I could not believe this video – it is a bit long (about 6 minutes) but you should at least watch him start juggling them and watch him finish with 3 solved Rubik’s cubes..
No idea how this is possible! He’s a Stanford University student, by the way, so he’s obviously pretty smart.
